back up now...sounds like they rode a 1SS and decided to neg it a little bit for that. other than that, decent write-up...I liked this "(Side note: If you do not buy a 1LE because it’s too thirsty, you are officially a horrible person.)" and this "But as go-faster options go, this one goes way better than most."

I think I am going to go crazy before this thing gets here. I spent a good part of the day de-moding my vert. :( And now I can't sleep and i have been studing the 1LE history. I want to know what i am going to be a part of.

Interesting they found "mild" understeer...oh they had the stability control system on. They just can't help but love Ford, going so far as to put a Mustang Boss LS video on the 1LE road test web page. Also I find it funny that a $37K Camaro is expensive for a Camaro, yet they use an almost $50K Mustang to compare it to???

"Our road-test chief, Robin Warner, rates the Boss 302 as livelier and more agile in its transient responses, citing a lighter feel overall—which makes sense, as the Boss is substantially lighter. Moreover, that dreaded word—“understeer”—appears in his instrumented 1LE test-track report, albeit mitigated by the word “mild.”
Still, lapping GingerMan Raceway showed us that while the 1LE package doesn’t exactly deliver balanced-on-a-pinpoint responses, the tail will come ’round with some throttle or a little trail braking. The stability-control system’s threshold is high, and the system goes to competition mode with two clicks of the on/off switch. Holding the button down for nine seconds will shut the system down completely, although our limited GingerMan experience prevented that level of bravery."

Driver/Journalist are like regular journalists, they're opinionated. Owners apparently will have a different take on their cars.

They also never really take sides for fear of not getting early access to the latest news. You end up with seemingly 50/50 comments. What I love about the Brits on top gear is that they can be refreshingly brutally honest.

Never was a road and track fan. This article just supports my decision more. Thanks for sharing though!

The American version is far better with the sound turned way down.
